PJ Pillow Pet

PJ Pillow Pet for my granddaughter.  Finished this one today.  I had a heck of a time finding buttons. 

The orange one is for her twin brother.  If you would like to custom order one of these cuties, please contact me.  As always, click on the picture to make it bigger.

Gathered Clutch

I just finished this little gathered clutch.  Love how it turned out.  It is 8.5" wide by 6.5" tall and the handle has a seven inch drop.  It is for sale in my Etsy shop here.  There are two slots/pockets on the inside for your reward cards, DL, credit cards, etc.  Put your phone and cash in and you are ready to go.

Walker Bag

A friend commissioned me to make a walker bag for her M-I-L.  I made it a little larger than the stroller bag and with a Velcro open and close handle.  It goes off in the mail tomorrow.

Key Fob & Fabric

I made this key fob today for a customer.  She bought my sample ABU bag.  As an extra gift, I  ordered a name tape and sewed it to the cotton webbing to make a key fob.


I usually don't go for these colors, but they called my name today at Joann's.  I had a 50% and 40% off coupon and got two yards of the brown and one of the other.  My plan is to make "roll-up" place mats for some of the people I work with for holiday gifts.  Make a pocket for lovely plastic ware. 

Another note - we have decided we want to move to Eugene, Oregon next year.  So I had a realtor come over today to put it on the market the first of September.

Tote Bag

I bought one of those flannel backed tablecloths at Easter time for 70% off.  I used part of it to cover my dryer and made this bag for me today.  I needed a bag to carry my stuff back and forth to work and this is just right. It's not lined and the stuff does not fray.

Car Trash Bag from ABU Shirt

My sister has been bugging me to make her one of these so here it is Sis.  It went out today with your belated birthday gift.  This is the sleeve from an Air Force shirt.  I use the front and back of the shirts to make the bag and have a bunch of sleeve left over.  Trying to make use of them and recycle.

I'm Cleaning and Giving Away!

I am cleaning up my sewing room, trying to down size.  It's a big job.  I have went through my binders of paper patterns and stuff I would never make so far.  I did clean up my fabric closet.  I have a set of "Women's Voices" BOM from 1998 all 12 months.  Fabric is of the civil war vintage.  Never touched all still in their little brown bags.  Any takers?  I think they will all fit into one of those prepaid postage envelopes.  Obviously I am not going to make them.

Leave me a comment, link back to my blog and I will pick a winner by Friday, August 6th.
